Lane Patriquin here. I’m the creator and administrator of Life Outside The Binary. I’ve been going by “newt” since the beginning, but since I’ve become involved in several nonbinary projects online, I’ve decided it’s time to step away from the pseudonym to kind of consolidate my internet presence.
At this point, visibility as a nonbinary transgender advocate has become more important to me than my anonymity, and I feel like I could benefit the community more by making myself available on multiple platforms and putting a face to the name (and a name to the nickname) as it were. So yeah, i’ll be going by my real name on this blog from now on. Pleased to meet you.
